Trove of Clinton White House papers released

Former US President Bill Clinton speaks in Louisville, Kentucky, on February 25, 2014Secret papers documenting Bill Clinton’s time in the White House were released Friday, but it was the role of then-first lady Hillary, now a prospective 2016 presidential hopeful, that attracted most scrutiny. The National Archives made public more than 3,500 pages of internal memos, notes and other documents were posted on the website of the Clinton presidential library. Among the collection are records from Hillary’s press office and documents related to her ill-fated attempt to reform health care in the early 1990s during her husband’s first term. But Hillary Clinton’s friends and foes alike will search the files for insight on her role in her husband’s presidency, and how the new information might impact her reputation as she mulls a second run for the White House.
